TRAVELLERS' 
CHEQUES 



The first essential in any form of 
credit instrument or money substi- 
tute is that it shall be convertible 
into currency or accepted in pay- 
ment at the holder's will/' 

A GLOBE TROTTER, 



DOMINION EXPRESS TRAVELLERS' CHEQUES are endowed with 
this quality, and in addition possess very many other advantages, which 
since the date of their origin have been greatly appreciated by tourists, 
owing to the additional comforts afforded holders by their being relieved 
of the many responsibilities undertaken by those carrying actual cash. 

DOMINION EXPRESS TRAVELLERS' CHEQUES are issued in 
convenient denominations of $io, $20, $50, $100, and $200. The cost 
for the service is 10/- for each £100, with a minimum of 2 - per sale, 
which can only be termed as very reasonable when compared with the 
convenience afforded the holder, combined with an ALL RISK cover 
against loss, theft, etc , until payment has been obtained. 

DOMINION EXPRESS TRAVELLERS' CHEQUES are obtainable from 
all Dominion Express and Canadian Pacific Offices. At the time of issue 
the purchaser is asked to sign his or her signature in a space provided in 
the upper left-hand corner of each chequs, and when payment is required, 
to sign again in the lower left-hand corner, in the presence of the person 
accepting the cheque for payment. This means of identification, although 
very simple, has proved itself an effcictive safeguard against cheques being 
encashed by other than the accredited person. 

For the convenience of its patrons all cheques furnished are suitably 
bound in a neat leatherette wallet, so designed as to reduce the whole into 
a very small compass. 

DOMINION EXPRESS TRAVELLERS' CHEQUES are cashable every- 
where by lianks, Hotels, Railway and Steamship Companies, and are 
readily accepted at full face value in settlement of purchases, etc.
